IMO the d3,d3s and d4 AFed noticeably better than the D300Yep, agreed here...went to d7100 and back to the d300. Nikon has really dropped the ball on dx offerings...which is sad. The only camera that track better than the d300 imo is the d4s....oh and you can buy 10-12 d300's for that price hahahahha
I take them both and make a game time decision which to use. The D7100's crop ability, iq and high iso can't be ignored, IMO anywayI can never decide between taking my D300s or the D7100 to a game. The cropping ability of the 7100 is a big plus, but the D300s is nicer to use. Now I have the 120-300/f2.8 I'll be able to use the 300 more as I have more reach, but night games I'll still use the 7100 because of the better noise handling.
